Jaffna Cadets Take Part in Annual Camp at Rantambe
[Updated :: 2010-10-26 14:41:23 Hours]

Students of Jaffna after a lapse of thirty years participated in Cadets’ training camp together with other school cadets all over the country last week. Eighty six male and female students from Jaffna Muthuthambi M.V., Vembady Girls’ High school, Jaffna Hindu College, Canakaratnam M.V., Jaffna Central College, Kokuvil Hindu College, Mallakam M.V., Hartley Colleg PPD, Nelliady M.M.V. and Chavakachcheri Hindu College with their teachers in charge were taken to Rantambe Training Centre on 14th October by officers of the National Cadet Corps (NCC).

Before they left Jaffna, those cadets were given training on foot drill and other useful subjects pertaining to activities they had to engage in whilst being in the camp. They were also given training on weapon drill and selected for the final parade accorded to the Chief Guest, Secretary Defence Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa on 23rd at the end of the award of “Hermann Loos” and “De Zoysa” trophies respectively to boys’ and girls’ platoons that scored highest marks in competitions during the camp.

Director NCC Major General (Retd) Gamini Jayasundara spoke to them and their teachers personally and looked into facilities and other requirements during the stay. They made it a fine opportunity to interact with students of various parts of the country and have new friends in the south.

Navy and Air Force wings of the NCC and foreign cadets from India, Maldives, Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan attended the camp.

It was usual for Jaffna school cadets to attend annual competition camps held in Diyatalawa by the then Sri Lanka Cadet Corps (SLCC), an organization established under the Sri Lanka Army Volunteer Force to mould leaders and disciplinary school leavers.
